Restore Carp land market,
BY CARLA GOMEZ
There is need to restore the genuine market for lands covered by the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program so they can become productive assets again, Rafael Coscolluela, president of the Confederation of Sugar Producers Associations, said yesterday.
Restoring the market for CARP lands means removing restrictions on their sale, mortgage or lease, he said.
Removing these restrictions will help agrarian reform beneficiaries sell, lease or mortgage their properties at higher rates, without having to go underground, that is unregulated and exploitative, Coscolluela explained.
